Lemon Ginger Detox Water
1 lemon (cut off the yellow peel, but leave the white which has the most bioflavonoids - see below)
a walnut sized piece of ginger
xylitol or stevia to taste (I get my xylitol, which is good for your teeth, here)
pinch of cayenne
Whirl this all in a blender with about a cup of filtered water (I use ionized alkaline water at the highest pH level). Then add in water to fill the blender and blend again.
Strain this into jars and refrigerate until chilled.
Enjoy throughout the day!
I don't know about you, but I get tired of drinking plain water. I know I must stay super hydrated, but sometimes I find myself putting off gettting a glass because I'm just not that jazzed about the flavor.
So, I came up with this Lemon Ginger Detox Water that I LOVE to drink all day. And, it's so supercharged it keeps me perfectly hydrated.
I just put this together first thing in the morning and I'm ready to go for the day.
What's in it for me?
Lemon - Well, where do I begin with the benefits of lemon water? It.... improves digestion, boosts immunity, boosts energy, rejuvenates skin, reduces inflammation, aids in weight loss, alkalizes your body, cleanses your body, has antibacterial and antiviral properties, reduces mucus and phlegm, freshens breath, boosts your brain power, is anti-cancer and is helpful in getting off caffeine. (And don't cut off the white part under the yellow peel - it has the most concentrated cancer fighting bioflavonoids. They aid in weight loss, are very antioxidant and can help restore blood sugar levels. Don't miss out!) Whew! Lemons rock.
Ginger - Here we go again... ginger is anti inflammatory, antibiotic, boosts immunity, reduces pain, reduces motion sicken and nausea, prevents gas and bloating, prevents colds and flu, relieves migraines, relieves menstrual cramps, and is good for heart health.
Cayenne - Is good for your heart, reduces migraine pain, enhances immunity, digestive aid, relieves joint pain, supports weight loss and is anti-cold,, flu and allergen.
Xylitol - reduces plaque and tooth decay by inhibiting sugars. Seriously, a sweetener that is good for your teeth.
Why on earth would you not drink this stuff!
Add ins for your water...
During the intial blending of ingredients add in one or more of the following:
A handful of mint leaves
A drop of good quality peppermint essential oil
A few drops of good quality lemon essential oil
One more thing...
Lemon Ginger Detox water is also great with lime.
AND it is terrific hot with honey when you have a cold or sore throat. All the great benefits of the lemon and ginger will help speed your recovery and comfort your symtoms!
